  • We describe the setup, design, and execution of a computational experiment utilizing a supercomputer that is helping to formulate and test conjectures in the real Schubert calculus. Largely using machines in instruc- tional computer labs during off-hours and University breaks, it consumed in excess of 350 GigaHertz-years of computing in its first six months of operation, solving over 1.1 billion polynomial systems. This experiment can serve as a model for other large scale mathematical… CONTINUE READING
